My mother in law Sheri Russell is not doing well. She passed away in our home.  My kids and husband sang hymns to her as she passed from this life to the peace of paradise.

Just guessing on mileage. Forced myself out there after a lot of so. I guess since the passing of my mother in law.   We will miss her more than we can say. It was an out of body experience of a run for me. Lots of intense emotion.
